Digital Preservation at the Five Colleges

As the institutions in the Five Colleges continue to make significant investments in the digitization of their unique resources and begin to collect born-digital material in our archives and special collections, the need to ensure the long term preservation and access of those resources is of paramount importance. Since 2011, the Five Colleges have been working together to develop a collaborative approach to digital preservation.

The resources on this page are the result of work by the Five College Digital Preservation Task Force and are meant to help individual institutions with their preservation planning.
